IVKO Wool Sweater Dress

Thoughtful Shopping: IVKO Wool Sweater Dress

When was the last time a garment REALLY thrilled you? Like you bought something and then you found yourself literally wanting to wear it every single day (except then I guess it would get a little stinky). That’s how I feel about my latest purchase – an extra-fine Merino wool sweater dress from the Serbian brand IVKO  – and it’s such a good feeling. This is how I want to feel about ALL of my purchases! Remember how I mentioned I’d found that really cool fair trade shop in my area which not only sold some great brands but also made its own clothing […]

Review of handmade Pink Maharani cashmere pashmina

Thoughtful Shopping Switzerland Edition – Pink Maharani and I Love Tall

When my friend Karen from Tall Wife invited me on an impromptu girls’ trip to Switzerland in November, I enthusiastically accepted the invitation. I envisioned a weekend full of fondue, shopping, exploring and girl talk and I wasn’t disappointed. In the shopping department, I scored a couple of tall tops and a magnificently soft cashmere shawl from Pink Maharani. Wait until you hear the story behind how it was made! Both Karen and I hopped on the train from our respective homes and met in Zurich. You may remember that I had been to Zurich in 2015 and had had a nice […]

MARGE Clothing Review

Tall Ethical Fashion – Blue Silk ANNI Blouse From MARGE Clothing

MARGE Clothing has been on my radar for well over a year, and I’m finally the proud owner of a lovely MARGE piece – the beautiful ANNI silk button-up blouse in poseideon blue. MARGE fills a unique void in the tall fashion world with its focus on luxurious, sophisticated apparel and ethical fashion. Since I am on the prowl for well-made investment pieces this year, I find MARGE’s vision to be quite refreshing and impressive. Keep an eye out for an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at MARGE’s production and sourcing in the near future. In the meantime, here’s a quick snapshot as to why/how MARGE fits into my Thoughtful […]

Tall off-the-shoulder top

Handmade Tall Off-The-Shoulder Top – Thoughtful Shopping Series

I’m super excited to bring you the first review in my Thoughtful Shopping Series. Remember my interview with Eryn Shields, the founder of CAS Clothing? Ever since the interview, I couldn’t stop thinking about the blue tall off-the-shoulder top with a peplum hem from CAS and just had to buy it! The main reason that my CAS Clothing top fits well with my Thoughtful Shopping Series is that it was handmade in the USA. Here are some more details: Who makes the items for CAS Clothing?  Eryn hand-makes all of the made to order (MTO) pieces and many of the in-stock pieces for […]

Long Tally Sally Outfit - Tall Blazer, Lace Top, Chelsea Boots

My Love Affair With Tall Blazers – Long Tall Sally Riding Jacket

Some may say that blazers are for old stuffy hoity toity fuddy-duddys, but I completely disagree. Adding a blazer to any outfit ups the chic factor and gives you a more put together look. My love affair with tall blazers just won’t quit and I’m always keeping my eye out for blazers with interesting details, fabrics and colors. When I spotted the Long Tall Sally riding jacket, it ticked all three of these boxes. Interesting details? How about the subtle metallic thread running through the fabric that gives the jacket a bit of shimmer when the light hits it the […]

J.Crew Tall Downtown Field Jacket

J.Crew Downtown Field Jacket – Out and About

It was unseasonably perfect today with a high of 60F/15C and lots of sunshine. This weather has me all giddy for spring and also makes me excited to wear my lighter jackets again like my J.Crew Downtown Field Jacket. If you’re curious about size, I bought both a small and medium and ended up keeping the small. The jacket has a boxy fit, and I felt like I was swimming a bit too much in the medium.  Even though I have a small, don’t think that I don’t cram one (and sometimes two) layers under this jacket because…mmmhmmm…I definitely do.  The […]

Long Tall Sally Review

Long Tall Sally Review! Spot Bow Blouse and Stitch Graphic Tunic

Remember my Long Tall Sally spot bow blouse and stitch graphic tunic that I sported during my trip to Vienna? Well I’ve been playing dress up with them and wanted to show you some fun ways to wear these items that Long Tall Sally kindly gifted me! LTS Chunky Stitch Graphic Tunic (c/o) Size: Small Fit: The tunic is loose enough to be able to wear a fitted long-sleeve layering tee underneath (making it perfect for chilly weather), but not so loose that it looks saggy baggy. I’m very happy with the fit! Special Details: The texture of the thick white thread woven […]

How to wear a white lace top

4 Ways to Wear a White Lace Top

Oh lace! You get me every time. Ever since my very first purchase in the form of a beautiful lace dress in NYC 3 years ago, I’m always on the prowl for other lace pieces. I love lace so much that I wish my husband would agree to let us have another wedding so that I can buy a lace wedding dress! Something tells me that’s not going to happen, so I will just continue to fill my closet with lace tops, skirts, dresses…you get the idea. Since I was in the market for a dressy neutral top, I was thrilled when […]

38″ Inseam Pants with Zipper Detailing

And now for the very last review in my Tall Specialty Shop Challenge! Remember my 38″ inseam gray jeans from tall shop Copper Couture in Zurich? Well it just so happens that I bought not one but TWO pairs of 38″ inseam pants on my little shopping spree. Can you say tall girl JACKPOT!?! In addition to the length, these pants have a lot of others things going for them. First, they are made of the softest pima cotton I have ever felt. I seriously wish I could use the pants as a blanket. Whenever I’m wearing them around a friend, I […]

Talltique Review

Talltique Review! My Black Friday Steals

2015 may be winding down but I still have some Tall Speciality Shop Challenge purchases to show you including another Talltique review. My very first purchase in this shopping challenge was my beloved faux leather bomber jacket from Talltique, so it seemed fitting that some of my last purchases in the challenge also be from Talltique. After taking a chance and falling in love with my ruana wrap this fall, I decided to order a similar piece from Talltique – a burnt orange drapey sweater vest. Similar to my ruana, I’m still figuring out how I want to style this […]
